The Alberta Pulse Showcase JAN 16 2017 | Consumers | Event and News Release

The Alberta Pulse Showcase was a successful Alberta event as part of the 2016 International Year of Pulses celebration. In partnership with the Alberta Pulse Growers and Alberta Agriculture & Forestry’s Food and Bio-Processing Branch, new products were developed with industry partners that used Canadian peas, beans, faba beans and their fractions.

Products presented at three Alberta Pulse Showcase events in 2016 included:

  • Ready-to-eat meat bars
  • Ravioli
  • Old-fashioned black and red licorice
  • Hot Italian and chorizo sausages
  • Decadent, rich chocolate cake
  • Thin and crispy chips
  • Sweet, delicate macarons
  • Savoury beef patties
  • Frozen vanilla and chocolate flavoured desserts
  • Healthy dog treats

Continuing beyond 2016, the goal is to further increase awareness and the local consumption of pulses and pulse ingredients in value-added food products.
